Top Ferraris at Gooding Scottsdale 2020
Gooding announced six Ferraris from a private collection for its Scottsdale 2020 classic car auction. The collection includes a 1995 Ferrari F50, which will be the most expensive car on offer at the 2020 Gooding Scottsdale sale – it just pips the previously announced 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast (Estimate: $2,500,000 – $3,000,000) and 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS (Estimate: $2,200,000 – $2,500,000) for the top slot.
“It is a pleasure to present these Ferraris from such a prominent collector and enthusiast,” states David Brynan, Senior Specialist at Gooding & Company. “This collection includes such iconic models as the 250 GT Series II Cabriolet and 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider, as well as limited edition, modern-day classics such as the 550 Barchetta and F50 supercar, and is a truly impressive and balanced offering of Ferrari’s most popular open sports cars. These fantastic cars are accompanied by two rare mid-engine V-8 models, both offered without reserve, so there really is a Ferrari to suit every taste.”
1995 Ferrari F50
Produced in extremely limited numbers, the F50 is unique among Ferrari supercars, as it is the only model in the lineage from 288 GTO to LaFerrari that boasts a naturally aspirated V-12 engine, six-speed manual gearbox, Pininfarina-designed bodywork, and an exhilarating open-air driving experience.
The 1995 Ferrari F50, estimate $3,200,000 – $3,600,000, finished in the popular Rosso Corsa livery, is one of only 55 US-specification examples built and was originally owned by the well-known Ferrari collector Benny Caiola. Promptly after purchasing the F50, Mr. Caiola put his brand-new prize on display at the 1996 Cavallino Classic in Palm Beach, Florida for Ferrari aficionados to marvel at in-person.
Now in the hands of its second owner, this highly original F50 is offered with its original hardtop, tools, owner’s manuals, and a comprehensive report from recognized Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. With less than 5,200 original miles and benefitting from a recent major service, this exceedingly rare F50 is sure to excite any passionate Ferrari collector or supercar enthusiast.
A Ferrari F50 Prototype will be offered during Scottsdale 2020 week at Worldwide Auctioneers.
1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider
Ferrari first gave the world a preview of the new 365 GTB/4 at the 1968 Paris Auto Salon. It was unofficially known as the “Daytona” in honor of Ferrari’s podium sweep at the previous year’s 24 Hours of Daytona and differed from its 275 GTB/4 predecessor by utilizing an enlarged 4.4-liter six-carb, four-cam V-12 engine. With a top speed in excess of 170 mph, the Daytona was the fastest car of its era and sprinted from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.
This well-documented 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider (Estimate: $2,000,000 – $2,400,000), is one of only 121 production examples built. It was once owned by two-time Oscar winner Sydney Pollack, and remains in its original livery of Argento Metallizzato over black leather interior. In 2007, this Daytona earned a prestigious FCA Platinum Award at the Concorso Arizona.
Beautifully presented in all respects, it has covered less than 40,000 miles from new. Equipped with optional Borrani wire wheels and offered with a proper tool kit, owner’s handbooks, and Massini report, this open-top Italian thoroughbred is one of the most iconic and desirable Ferrari models of all time.
1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet
Pinin Farina’s elegant Series I and Series II Cabriolets garnered attention from audiences around the world when they were released, but with limited production and top-of-the-line asking prices, they remain the most exclusive of all Ferrari 250 GTs. The Series II Cabriolet varied from its predecessor due to its more understated styling and improved mechanicals, including four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes and a gearbox with electric overdrive.
One of only 200 examples built through 1962, this 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet (Estimate: $1,300,000 – $1,500,000), chassis 2075 GT, was sold new to Alejo Peralta Diaz, one of Mexico’s wealthiest businessmen. Later restored to concours standards under the ownership of well-known Mexican collector Jaime Muldoon, this has been shown selectively, including outings at Concorso Italiano and Cavallino Classic. Now finished in dark red over tan, this handsome 250 GT Cabriolet, offered with a rare, unrestored factory hardtop, would be an ideal touring car worthy of any discerning Ferrari collector’s consideration.
2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta
To commemorate the famed Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina’s 70th birthday, Ferrari’s longtime designer was commissioned to build a limited run of Spiders reminiscent of the marque’s famed Barchettas from the 1950s. The final product became the 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta and was unveiled at the 2000 Paris Motor Show to enormous admiration. In total, just 448 examples were built, with this 550 Barchetta being number 141 completed.
The 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta (Estimate: $400,000 – $500,000) is finished in Rosso Corsa over black leather and has covered just 680 miles from new. Its current owner has preserved the 550 Barchetta in superb condition, down to the factory protective plastic covering the interior carpets. This car offers its new owner a rare opportunity to own an immaculate, limited-production modern beauty that pays tribute to the most famous early Ferrari models.
Additional offerings from this esteemed private collection include a 1985 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole (Estimate: $80,000 – $100,000) and a 1990 Ferrari 348 TS (Estimate: $80,000 – $100,000), both offered without reserve. Finished in Ferrari’s iconic Rosso Corsa over black leather, the 1985 Ferrari 308 GTS was named for its three-liter, eight-cylinder engine, which featured four valves per cylinder. This 308 GTS will make an exceptional addition to any Enzo-era purist. The 1990 Ferrari 348 TS is a desirable example in Targa form with only four owners from new. This incredibly low-mileage, well-preserved 348 TS rounds out the fantastic collection of Ferrari Spiders.
